Join ACF Community Geelong for the fourth and final workshop of our ‘Saving Energy; Energy Efficiency For Renters’ series; ‘Greening Your Rental.’

This workshop will be hosted at The Farm Next Door, Norlane, a wonderful example of what it's possible to grow in a standard rental property.

In this workshop we'll look at what your rights are in the garden as a renter, what you're allowed to grow and where. We'll look at the basics of plant growing (how to make a garden bed) as well exploring growing plants for energy efficiency... ie. how to get shade from the summer sun but still let in the winter sun. We'll also have a look at different methods of trellising, which your plants will love to grow up!

Participants will be able to take home different seeds/cuttings of useful plants as well as a barrow load of compost to start their own garden bed at home.

This is a FREE event. All materials will be provided as well as a scrumptious afternoon tea.
